MacDonald Miller Uni-Match Water Feeder

Hello Guys, I am a handy Homeowner. I was checking out my automatic Water feeder; I was wondering if the cap underneath it is used for cleaning? If I shut off the water supply to it, would it be wise to even attempt to clear/Clean it? It is on pretty tight, I did not wanna break the small 1/2 Inch copper pipes serving it?

Question#1 is that brass screw cap for flushing it?

#2 Should I even bother?

The installation is about 5 years old

    Unless it gets plugged

    I wouldn't open it. There is a strainer in there, but unless it needs cleaning............
